The Best Tacos in Fort Wayne

Until the last few years, Mexican food was getting pretty stale in Fort Wayne.  Choices were not much more than variations of two ingredients: tortillas and meat.  You were then lucky enough to be presented with a side of flavorless refried beans and dry rice.  But, oh, the cuisine has evolved!

Great Bike Paths in Fort Wayne

Riding my bike through the back of Eagle Marsh, across a wooden bridge and spying a Great Egret fishing reminds me of how crucial it is to get out of my car more. That's why I'm excited about National Bike Month. It's such a win-win. Good for your health, good for the environment's health.

But, if you've never gone inside Sweetwater, go ahead, they want you to!  They welcome visitors!

Art Galleries in Fort Wayne

If you were to describe Fort Wayne to an outsider, the description ‘artist's town' wouldn't immediately come to mind. We've been called the city of churches and the city of trees, but the city of art galleries? That hasn't happened - not yet anyway. But when you start counting them up, the Fort Wayne Museum of ArtArtlinkOrchard Gallery, the galleries at The University of St. FrancisJennifer Ford Art, and scores more, you start to wonder if we should frame ourselves with the moniker ‘The City of Galleries'. An entire book could be devoted to all the choices offered around town, but I had to draw the line somewhere, so here are a few of my favorites.
